Wing tank stiffeners

Category: Fuel tanks — Steffen @ 21:56 — Hours: 1

I trimmed the two wing walk-way doublers and the fuel tank stiffeners today on our bench shear at work. Only took me about 10 minutes. At home in the shop I spend about an hour rounding the edges and deburring these stiffeners. They are much like the ones for the rudder and elevators. (see this post for more info) There are 24 stiffeners total, I finished 18 of them. Decided to give the bench grinder and my back a rest! 😉
